Last week Melbourne's Saskwatch played to a packed, sweaty room and said goodbye to what has almost been a three year residency at Cherry Bar.
All is not lost. The band can still be caught for goodtimes before they head off to shake up the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August. Resolute and larger than life, Saskwatch are a nine-piece soul explosion. Taking cues from the likes of James and Aretha, as well as New York's bangin' modern soul scene. Saskwatch smash out their inimitable live show, hard, rough and tight. Leading the pack is singer Nkechi Anele, taking audiences from the depths of heartache to overwhelming joy in just one night.
Saying goodbye is only the beginning for the band as they gear up for three special shows in celebration of their new 7" single 'Your Love', kicking off next Friday the 20th at Ding Dong Lounge.
'Your Love' is the second single to be released from Saskwatch's upcoming debut long-player Leave It All Behind due out this August.
